2016 Bike-A-Thon Recap
The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA hosted its 14th Annual Bike-A-Thon on February 20, 2016.
This eight hour studio cycling event was made up of 40 teams and nearly 300 participants all spinning to raise money for the YMCA’s Annual Campaign. All proceeds benefit children, families and seniors in need in our community and give them the ability to access YMCA programs through Scholarships. The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA has offered quality programs and YMCA membership to all community members, regardless of ability to pay for over 56 years. Last year nearly 2,000 children, seniors and families received Scholarships from the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA and over 220 children whose parents were active duty military had the chance to attend a week long day camp filled with field trips, activities and snacks at absolutely no cost to the families.
A big silent auction, entertainment as well as raffle prizes from local businesses made the Bike-A-Thon a fun and lively event. Local eateries provided food and refreshments which increased the community support that this event generated.
Make sure you join us next February for another ride towards creating brighter futures for children and families in our community!
